    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      The night before the gammon is to be cooked place it in a bowl of cold water and allow to soak.
    2. 2
      This removes some of the salt and tenderises it a little bit.
    3. 3
      Place in a large cooking pot, (make sure you have a lid for it), cover with cold water, add the onions and bouquet garni and bring to the boil.
    4. 4
      Turn the heat right down so the water is barely bubbling and put on the lid.
    5. 5
      Cook for 20 minutes per pound of meat.
    6. 6
      Once the cooking time is up leave the meat in the liquour until cooled.
    7. 7
      This stops it tensing up, and drying out, and makes it lovely and tender.

      I had quit buying ham because of the saltiness so I was so happy to find this recipe. I soaked it for 8 hours in cold water and boiled it for about an hour and a half. The taste is awesome! The only drawback is that the ham was pretty dry. I will try boiling it for less time and see how that works. I will definitely use this many times more. Thanks so much for posting this recipe.

      I came to find out how much time to do the boil. My aunt in Idaho is the person that showed my mom how good a boiled ham is! Thanks for the recipe next time I will soak, and add seasonings. I am using a very large pot to do this. My braising cast Iron was not tall enough. I have issues with my stove so it was a rolling boil eventually and then I couldn't get it to slow down. So I took it out after 2 hours. Letting it sit now.

      The recipe is clear and the result is a lovely moist ham. I had visions of the boiled Cottage roll that my mother used to cook every Christmas and this cut of ham just isn't the same. I award 5 stars to the recipe and 3 stard to me for not choosing the right cut. The real old fashioned Cottage roll is very hard to find. added comments 13 Oct 2008 I used a lovely ham end and it is delicious - moist and good. Still can't find a "real" cottage roll but this cut was really good Thanks for you easy recipe.
